Can someone explain to me how to figure out the multiples so I can decide how many stitches to cast on. Thanks, Candice http://andreatung.blogspot.com/2007/...t-pattern.html

Plus a total of three stitches for edges (2 on one side, 1 on the other - they alternate) The clue is what stitches you repeat across the width of the blanket.

If i understand correctly, the pattern consists of 3 sts. You have K2, then *pattern* then K1. So 132 sts -3 (border sts) =129. 129/3=43. That means that the pattern repeats 43 times. You can make less repeats and make the blanket a narrow one. You just have to CO 3 sts+ 3X? to keep the pattern correct. I hope i did the right math and HTH __________________ Good things come in small packages...Unless it's YARN!
